While Dot specializes in back pain, she has also successfully works with:
What happens when you work individually is you get a movement plan specifically designed for your body. Dot will re-engineer your body by listening to you, exploring with you, figuring out what makes you worse and what makes you better. She then designs your individual plan. You work on it together.
This may take anywhere from one to multiple sessions. Our absolute most popular program is 5 Weeks to Get Rid of Your Back Pain. Most people experience relief within a week or two. This individual program comes with a guarantee that your pain will be better.
We delve into your behavior and figure out exactly what life patterns are contributing to your pain and give you alternatives to keep your pain away.
Dot’s approach, the Spaet Method, is that everyone is different and everyone needs a customized solution tailored to their specific needs. While this is possible in a group, for some situations it’s definitely better alone. For example, a client in a car accident that needed the jaws of life to get her out of the car and could barely move is much better off getting private attention. This is true for any complicated situation.
Other reasons to do individual one-on-one sessions:
Some people like being pampered more
You’d like someone to come to you
You have a specific condition that is difficult or complicated enough that individual work makes more sense
You have an erratic, crazy-busy or changeable schedule
Our philosophy is for you to get involved; we need to be involved in our own healing. We can learn to move in specific ways that free our bodies from pain. This knowledge is incredibly powerful; you can make a difference in your own body and your own pain.
A spine that is in alignment with enough space in between each vertebra is the spine of a person whose back does not hurt.
What this means, is the converse:
If our back hurts, our spine is somehow out of alignment; this includes when our spine is compressed where there is not enough space in between the vertebrae. We therefore need to learn to identify where the spine is out of alignment and then learn to move in ways that decompress the spine and get it back into alignment.
So we get the spine into alignment for maximum pain-free mobility. We look for imbalances: identify them, then teach you exactly what to do to fix the imbalances. At this point, usually within a few weeks, your back pain is starting to go away.
Sometimes our backs or other joints hurt because they are doing work the muscles are meant to do. Joints are not meant to do the work of the muscles. We teach you exactly how to train your muscles to do the work they are supposed to do, so your joints and back can stop hurting.
